August 7, 2012 in Alternative, Dream Pop, Electronic, Experimental, New Wave, Pop, Progressive Metal, Rock, Roots, Soul, Surf Pop, Top 2012, Tribal Pop by Rex

Feistodon – “A Commotion” {Prog Metal}

Somehow Feist went from singing about sea lions to collaborating with a progressive metal band and trashing a hotel room, but we Canadians can be pretty random like that. The track was originally recorded by Feist but then later covered by Mastodon, (and if you check out the interactive HTML5 video here you can switch up the audio to hear both versions of the song).

Liars – “Brats” {Experimental Rock}

Hide yo wife and hide yo kids, because you’re about to watch a trigger-happy Elmer Fudd battle it out with a horny Bugs Bunny. Plus the mullet makes a  triumphant return at 2:25. Truly some disturbing shit and slightly NSFW.

Black Moth Super Rainbow – “Windshield Smasher” {Electronic/Rock}

Here’s how it all goes down: Some dude and his wench of a girlfriend get lost driving around the city, then all of a sudden a bunch of masked hooligans start smashing up their car, shove the couple’s faces into tubs of water, and worst of all…shave the dude’s beard off. It’s really not a pretty sight.

Stealing Sheep – “Genevieve” {Dream Pop}

Check out the Liverpool trio as they blow up a bunch of balloons reverse-style and pull the kind of dance moves that only Napoleon Dynamite would be proud of. The track is the second single off their debut album Into the Diamond Sun, which is set to be released on August 20th via Heavenly.

Lower Dens – “Candy” {Alternative Rock}

The latest music video from this Baltimore-based band seems to be about some kind of weird boot camp/team-building exercise, but the transvestites sporting blue face paint has left us feeling confused and slightly disturbed to say the least. The video was directed by Alan Resnick and Noah Collier, and the track is off the band’s latest album Nootropics.

Frankie Rose – “Know Me” {New Wave}

The latest music video from the Dum Dum/Vivian girl is a little bit Tron, a little bit eXistenZ, and even a little bit Terminator (blame the futuristic goggles), and was directed by Ricardo Rivera and produced by Urban Outfitters.

Oberhofer – “Cruisin FDR” {Alternative Rock}

This video starts off with what looks like a typical and pleasant summery car ride, but then ends with the members getting attacked by flesh-eating zombies and then mysteriously transformed into a tiny, fluffy puppy. The single is off their recent album Time Capsules II which was released via Glassnote.

The Mynabirds – “Disarm” {Tribal Pop}

This track is off the band’s recent album GENERALS, which was produced by Richard Swift (who also co-directed the video). The band’s frontwoman Laura Burhenn (seen sporting the tribal-ish taxidermy headdress) describes the concept of the video/track as “a real Zen approach to ending fighting on every level.”

Tom Waits – “Hell Broke Luce” {Experimental Rock}

You can thank director Matt Mahurin for coming up with the concept of this “apocalyptic war dream” of a music video, which Waity boy himself describes as “uplifting and fun.” Okay then.

Passion Pit – “Constant Conversations” {Pop/Soul}

Passion Pit’s latest video was directed by Dori Oskowitz and is packed full of all sorts of famous peeps like Peter Bogdanovich (The Sopranos), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Taryn Manning (8 Mile) and Roger Guenveur Smith (American Gangster).

My Morning Jacket – “Outta My System” {Rock/Roots}

The latest music video from My Morning Jacket transports you to another world where all the band members are one-eyed space travelers and The Hangover‘s Zach Galifianakis can shoot lightning bolts from his fingers; (killer Snooki boots man!).
